Brownies are my all time favorite dessert and this decadent brownie takes it to next level with the addition of perfect combo – peanut butter and bananas. Moist and perfect, these brownies taste delicious
I have prepared these brownie several times in the past both with creamy smooth peanut butter and crunchy peanut butter , for me the winner is the crunchy peanut butter brownies. The crunchy peanut butter lends in additional flavor
The first time, I had prepared this, I had sliced the brownies immediately once it was completely cooled and second time, I sliced it after gap of 16 hours. The second time, brownie tasted amazingly delicious. The flavors of banana and peanut butter had completely set in taking it’s taste to next level
If using smooth peanut butter, you can always add in nuts or chopped peanuts for the crunchy taste
